Deserts and tropical jungles. Beaches and volcanoes. Archaeological sites and colonial architecture. Throbbing cities and indigenous peoples. Chili peppers and mangoes. Handicrafts and contemporary design.

Mexico really has it all.


Famous for its white sand beaches and Mayan archaeological sites, the Yucatan Peninsula captivates everyone. Its natural environment is composed of tropical jungles, cenotes, caves, and coasts; its cultural world is characterized by haciendas, Mayan archaeological sites, colonial cities, and magical towns. Its atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming, and friendly.

This tropical land, with its year-round warm climate, is the gateway to the Mayan world, which encompasses much more than archaeological remains. 

Today’s Maya are a people proud of their origins and looking to the future. Many communities have organized themselves in a communal way to offer ecotourism stays and experiences. 

The peninsula is made up of three states – Campeche, Yucatan, and Quintana Roo – and is surrounded by turquoise seas, which has led to unbridled tourism development along its coasts with, at times, dire consequences. However, by moving away from the coasts, you will enter a universe full of natural and cultural wonders.

As the most varied state in terms of ecosystems, Oaxaca lends itself like no other for outdoor activities. The rural communities of the sierras, pioneers in community ecotourism at the national level, have organized themselves to offer unique experiences.

It is a land that produces coffee, cocoa, and all the fruits you can imagine, thanks to the great variety of climates and ecosystems. Its natural colors are green and blue in all shades.

Deserts filled with giant cacti contrast with palm oases and turquoise blue seas. Mountain ranges open into vertiginous canyons. A hospitable land that pampers visitors with wines and cheeses. Whales jumping in crystalline waters.  Northern Mexico is a vast territory waiting to be visited. 

Northern Mexico is a vast territory almost ignored by conventional tourism. Just for this reason, we have a particular affection for it. It is an unknown and profound Mexico. Of the huge states that border the U.S., there are two destinations that stole our hearts: Baja California -also known as Baja- and the Copper Canyon in the state of Chihuahua.

Embedded between the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific, Baja consists of a narrow strip of beautifully inhospitable land with an approximate length of 1250 kilometers, as well as a width of 225 kilometers. It offers the traveler the possibility of finding themself alone in front of the immensity of the landscapes: from solitary beaches to endless deserts with gigantic cacti of the Vizcaíno. From migrating humpback whales and giant sea turtles to sea lion colonies and reefs teeming with fish, it is home to unique wildlife that can be accessed without great effort: on foot, by bike, diving, or by boat. 

Across the Sea of Cortez lies Chihuahua, Mexico’s largest state, which is home to the largest river canyon system in the world: the Copper Canyon of the Sierra Tarahumara with depths of up to two thousand meters. This natural treasure is home to the Tarahumara, also known as Rarámuris. An ethnic group that defines itself as “light-footed” for its ability to travel long distances at surprising speed. Explore the area with a hiking trip through the mountains or take the famous and scenic El Chepe train through the peaks.
